Workout Wednesday: Lean & Strong Upper Body Workout

Happy hump day my friends. It's midweek, and maybe you need some workout motivation to get you back in gear. It's been so long since I've done a circuit for you guys, and am so pleased to be showing one of my favorite upper body workouts as of lately. 
Today I am going to be showing you three moves that will work your chest, biceps, back, and shoulders. 

What you will need:
Hand weights, and a bench. I like to use weights between 5-7.5 lbs.

What muscle groups we are working:
Chest, biceps, shoulders, and back.

Note: With this circuit quickly move from one exercise to the other to keep heart rate elevated. 

Do 20 reps for each exercise, and do 3 sets of the circuit.

Dumbbell Flat Bench Press

Start with your arms at a 90 degree angle, and press the weights straight up in the air. Do this for 20x reps.

Overhead Shoulder Press

Start with arms at a 90 degree angle, and press weights up in the air. When you bring the arms back to original position squeeze the shoulder blades tight together. Do this for 20x reps.

Bicep Curls

Have your arms away from your body in a low "W" away from the body. Curl the weights to shoulders then away from the body. Do this for 20x reps.

Once you've completed the circuit rest for 1 minute then do 2 more sets of the circuit for a total of 3.
